Graduates of this program will have the foundational coursework leading into four year mechanical and/or and electrical engineering technology programs at various universities, including a direct transfer into the Miami University degree completion program, as well as being qualified for entry level engineering technicians in product design, engineering support, and other technical support positions. This program, as well, is aligned to provide an option for college credit plus students who may be interested in an engineering technology field.

Career Outlook

The demand for technicians and engineering technologists remains high, with two of the main areas of interest in mechancial and electrical. While positions have historically been described as either mechanical or electrical, today many companies are looking for mechanicial engineering technologists with some electrical background or electrical with some mechanical aptitude. Companies are looking for individuals with both mechanicial and electrical skills. This has also been recognized by universities, who now offer Bachelor of Science degrees in electro-mechanical engineering technology. Graduates from this program will have the foundational coursework leading into four year mechanical and/or electrical engineering technology programs at various universities, including a direct transfer into the Miami University degree completion program. Graduates will also be qualified for entry level engineering technicians in product design, engineering support, and other technical support positions.

Program Learning Outcomes

Learners will be able to:

  1. Understand fundamental electrical and magnetic theory and reduce to practice direct current (DC) and alternating current (AC) circuits.
  2. Interpret electrical diagrams and schematics to predict behavior and to assess functionality using handheld and bench-top measurement instruments.
  3. Implement computer-based instrumentation, and control of digital and analog electronics.
  4. Interpolate and complete engineered drawings using orthographic projection, isometric views, and proper dimensioning practices, then employ the use of Computer-Aided-Design (CAD) software.
  5. Describe the different manufacturing processes and demonstrate proper use of precision measuring devices and instruments.
  6. Analyze and calculate the resolution of forces on rigid bodies; determine the stress, strain, and deflection.
